Our Blog Guidelines

Keeping our blog secure is of the utmost importance to us.  Through blogging, the students in Room 1 will have the opportunity to learn more about appropriate online behaviour.

The following guidelines have been established to ensure the safety of students when blogging:

  • Students will be identified by their first name only.  (i.e. written by Peter)
  • Photographs of the classroom and students will not be identified.
  • Comments written by students are checked by Mrs. Renton before they are published on the blog.
  • All students must have parental permission to post comments on the blog and to have their photo or video published on the blog.
  • Parents who leave comments are asked to use their first name only, (or as _____’s mom), so as not to identify their child.
  • All students must abide by the blogging rules that we have established as a class.

If you have any other questions or comments about the security of Room 1’s blog, please contact Mrs. Renton.

    What a wonderful blog and communication initiative. We live in Parksville, British Columbia on Vancouver Island. The closest we ever got to South America was when we traveled through the Panama Canal on a cruise ship. We are enjoying all of the information and comments from this blog. Wally and Caroline

      Hi! Check back tomorrow – the Grade Three Bloggers will send you a reply! First of all, though, they will have the EXCITEMENT of trying to figure out just exactly WHERE the Panama Canal is on the classroom map and through the MAGIC of Google Earth! 🙂

      Hi Wally and Caroline. Mrs. Renton just told US that you are her MOM and DAD!!! Mrs. Renton is like our daytime mom … so YOU are kind of like our daytime GRANDPARENTS!!! Hope you’re OKAY with that … there ARE 23 of us!!! We had NO idea what the Panama Canal looked like … so we went to Google Earth to check it out! We discovered that the Canal is in Central America … and not that far away from Peru, which we are learning about. Peru is in South America … on the west coast. When we saw the pictures of them moving the ships through the canals we thought it was pretty amazing. When you were at the Panama Canal, did you get to SEE them moving the ships through the canal? We know that you’ve been to Calgary. Do you have any favourite spots you like to go to when you are here? Thank you for leaving a comment on our blog … we hope you will keep checking back because we will be writing a NEW post on Wednesday! The Grade Three Bloggers 🙂

        We are honored to be the daytime grandparents of such an upstanding group. Your part in making the world a better place is admirable. When we were going through the Panama Canal, yes, we did see other ships moving through. It is a fascinating sight to see. We love Calgary – it is a beautiful city. We especially love the views of the Rocky Mountains towards the west. Walking up Signal Hill is great too, and the views of the city are beautiful from there. Other favorite spots are Heritage Park, the Glenmore Dam area, and Griffith Park. Keep up the great job!!

    Congratulations on your Walk-a-Thon to raise money for the Q’enqo Project. It looks like you have learned how lucky you are to live in wonderful place like Calgary. You have learned that there are many, many children who do not have books to read or books to learn by. Four kilometres is quite a distance for you to have walked and then to realize that there are children in the world who walk many kilometres so that they can go to school and learn. As a Nana I am very proud of all of you and particularly you, Natasha, for taking part in helping those who are less fortunate than us.

      Hi Lynn!

      Thanks for your wonderful comment! Your compliments to us made us feel amazing! Good thing we were able to make our Q’enqo walk before the rain came. The sky was VERY dark! When we did the walk we were wondering how tired we would be doing this EVERY day … back and forth … for EIGHT kms in total. Not EVERYBODY in Q’enqo walks that far … but many kids do. We think that they must really want to learn if they are going to walk that far every day! We hope you check back … we will write a couple of more posts before we “pass the torch” on to next year’s Grade Threes!

      Hi Dimitri!

      I love that you left a message for Ross … I hope he finds it! Talk to me tomorrow about how to get your replies to connect directly so someone else’s specific comment. It might make it a little easier for Ross to find it!

    Hi, Grade three bloggers!!! I hope you posts go very good. When I went in third grade at Battalion Park School I LOVED to write Bloggs! Mrs Renton taught me a lot of good things and we were the first class to start the blogging:-) . I loved helping the kids in Peru!
    Mrs. Renton is AMAZING, I am sure you will think the same!

    Miss you Mrs. Renton!

    From your norwegian student Martin Kringstad

      Hi Martin!

      We think it is SO cool that you were the FIRST class to blog! We like blogging too! There are so many awesome comments, though, that it is hard to get to them right away. That’s one of the things we find HARD about blogging!

      We’ve heard about the library in Peru, and we’ve seen pictures, but we haven’t Skyped with anyone from Mosqoy yet. We are supposed to have a guest speaker who worked with the Library in Q’enqo this summer with Mosqoy but Mrs. Renton hasn’t heard anything back from her yet.

      You made Mrs. Renton blush. She felt pretty spoiled to be able to work with YOU!!! She misses you a TON!

    Thanks, Reid for directing me to your blogging page. I have never blogged before so I hope you get this.
    Grandma Mary is very interested in all the interesting things you and your classmates are doing.

    Do you know why you have 2 ears and only one mouth?

      Hi Mary!

      Thank you for this totally awesome comment. We LOVE that Reid showed you the blog because we are going to write lots of lovely things on it this year! We haven’t blogged before either but we are learning lots of cool things about it. Reid could probably give you some good tips! We are glad that you are interested in our learning!
